us ask, what is a disaster anyway? >>> good morning. i'm melissa harris perry coming to you from horockefeller city, the new york city still reeling from the effects of superstorm sandy and her landfall earlier this week. today, 2.5 million people remain without power and at least 40 new yorkers have died in the storms aftermath. almost half of those deaths were in just one of the burroughs that make up the five burroughs of new york, staten island. now, this striking image was captured by an nbc producer and staten island. sandy's wake left the debris in the backyard of john della rosa's severely smashed home. smashed plates mingled with halloween decorations. overwhelmed by the devastation, rocked by the power of the storm, he is left to pick up the pieces of the storm surge which sent more than 8 feet of water into the neighborhood. he is also left to grieve the losses of his next door neighbors, the foundation and stairs are all that remain of the dresh family home. george dresh and his 13-year-old daughter, angela died, when the storm surge came through their home. george's
had my sister and i and raised us in new york. she could not vote in her home town until she was 40 years old in 1965 but her generation made it possible for me to vote, for me to run for president, for me to sit in rockefeller center on election eve. i owe my children more than i have. she gave me more than she had. tomorrow i like obama but i'll be voting for my mama. thank you for watching. i'm al sharpton.

sniet. >>> as we fall back from daylight savings shs the candidates are using every minute of that extra hour. president obama bounces from one battle ground state to another using ohio as his airline hub. he's using all the hot spots trying to rally his base and any undecided voters he thinks are left. governor romney is also racing against the clock, tweaking his argument. and in case you forgot, we've got more than two guys running on tuesday, tonight we'll break down all of the battles, particularly for congress and who will decide control of it and what the next president can get done. good evening from democracy plaza. it's saturday, november 3, 2012. this is a prime time edition of "the daily rundown." we're taking a look at how we got here. presidential elections that aren't close are actually odd. no republican has gotten more than 300 electoral votes since 1988. only four democrats in history have gotten more than 53% of the vote. bottom line, this is 1976 meets 2000 meets 2004. in other words, it's a very close race. so how did we get here? the president began this campaign we
let us wait. let big bill wait. see how this second obama term starts off. learn how the country is doing. watch, listen, enjoy life in this country. you have four years traveling the world. kick back and enjoy this country. i wish her well. that's "hardball" for now. the ed show starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. the president has told progressive leaders he's not budging on taxes. >> we're prepared to stand up for america. >> the campaign for the middle class begins at the white house, and the campaign pour millionaires has begun on the senate floor. >> half the congress opposes tax hikes. >> tonight, mary kay henry of the service employees international union and senator brown on the new campaign for the middle class. paul ryan is finally speaking, and he's still in the bubble. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout especially in urban areas. >> ohio state senator turner is here to respond. the petition to see seed is growing with speed. >> deep in the heart of texas! >> find out why i agree
to have you with us tonight. folks, thanks for watching. the days are racing by and time is running out. mitt romney needs something short of a miracle in the worst way. romney went to clooeflds today to project strength. in the choice of the american people can lead to one of two very different destinations. if the president were to be reelected -- [ booing ] >> it's possible, but not likely. >> romney's running mate paul ryan is trying to complete a hale mary pass in wisconsin. he was tailgating with packer fans today at lambeau field. then it was off to ohio as well. >> two more days. just two more days. two more days. this is one of those elections we will think back at and look at for years. >> the national polling average has president obama on top by just half a point. romney isn't as close in the states where the election is going to be decided. in paul rooip's home state of wisconsin, the president leads by an average of more than four points. president obama has kept a stead zi two-point lead in nearby iowa. in ohio the president's lead has not diminished in recent weeks. the
honestly disagreed with his recollection of what he told us on september 14th. >> not his recollection here. will this just raise more questions? >> i think for republicans it will. i do get a sense there is fishing for a scandal here on the part of republican members of congress. they had been doing that before the election and i think it hasn't stopped since. i think what we know is that there was a straight forward difference between the cia's initial assessment of what happened on september 11 in benghazi and what they later revised that assessment to be. i don't think there is a scandal there. i think you had the cia giving its best initial assessment to dr. susan rice who then gave that assessment to the public on behalf of the white house and then the assessment changed on the part of the cia. i'm not sure what the scandal is but i've heard words like watergate being thrown around which i think goes a step too far and is too political. >> cameras did not catch petraeus arriving this morning even though there were reporters staking out every possible entrance and all we saw was a blac
saying he wasn't legitimate and saying it was stolen and fearful where that person will lead us? >> aing thi think that depends determination of citizens across the country that are outside the normal teams that operate in the two campaigns. we have a professional middle class in america. they're stoking the fires of fear. as i go across the country, people want the country to work together again. if a republican wins, they want that republican to work with the democrats and vice versa. i was out in the great plains. that's a part of the country doing very well. they didn't do any of the dumb things with subprime lending, agriculture is booming and unemployment in north and south dakota are under 5%. if they can make it work, why can't they make it work in washington? we need more of that to move the country forward. we're still playing by 20th century rules in this country in almost everything we do and we're in the 21st century. what's so striking is we're all in awe of silicon valley and all it produces for us. this transformative technology. what's the mantra of silicon valley? be di

of times square, new york city, just getting going. with us on set, msnbc contributor, put that in quotes, it's up for debate what he contributes, mike barnicle, richard haass, chairman of deutsche inc., donny deutsch and cohost of "the cycle," s.e. cupp. it's not really new. >> it's old now. >> you know what i contribute? i contribute some insight into the growing ego mania that is young willie geist. >> yes! >> the 37-year-old sexiest man on earth? >> what? >> oh, wow, we're doing this 40 seconds in, huh? >> "people" magazine. >> getting it out of the way. there he is. willie geist listed as the sexiest 37-year-old man in america. >> i'm titillated. >> it's not just me saying it anymore, it's documented. >> where am i? am i on the right show? >> later today -- >> this is why i got up early? >> later this morning, we are going to have the new editor of "people" magazine here, helen keller. >> oh! >> that's cruel. >> ba dumb bum. >> long setup. way to go. donny's on there, too. >> donny's on the list, too. >> what was it, "50 shades of grey." >> i was in the decaying category. sexy and de
. joins me now is u.s. senator sherrod brown. we have nina turner coming up later on. >> i love watching nina on your show. >> i get you passionate ohio folks mixed up. >> that's okay. >> sherrod brown with us and mary kay henry, president of the services employment international union who met with the president today. i would be remiss, mary kay, if i did not ask you right off the bat, did the president say he was not going to budge on taxes? he did it once in 2010, and he won't do it again? >> the president was incredibly serious and focused and really relieved to hear that we are going to keep our ground game going, that our working people and community members all across this country are ready to have this fight and want to have the middle class tax cuts permanently extended. that's the action that congress can take right now. and then work together to make sure that the wealthiest americans pay their fair share so we can get back to work. >> well, did he tell the group that he was not going to budge on taxes? >> he was crystal clear about that, yes. >> so you're confirming the huffi
. >> what about the scare techniques that mitt romney is using and the president calling him out on it and the recession talk? >> there is the recession talk, but actually i thought more outrageous was the idea that if the president gets reelected, we're going to be back to default and this idea of a government shutdown as if it is the president who thinks that defaulting on america's debt or shutting down the government is a good idea. those are the republican tactics. you know, i'm amazed how much and how apparently confident mitt romney can be in projecting republican positions on to this president and accusing him of being responsible for everything the republicans want to do. it is just not the case. he knows that. republicans know that. but it is something that he seems to think he can spin to voters right now. >> i don't know if job numbers are going to motivate people to get out and vote, but certainly whoever the next president is, what kind of an economy, david, would you say that president would be inheriting? >> well, we still have a lot of work to do. it took 32 year
people come over time and time again to say exactly that. what is next? who will come to help us? we don't have electricity. we don't have enough gasoline to run our generators. that's the situation. i brought over one of the residents who is here at staten island. what is next, richard? >> it's difficult to tell. i think we have a mayor who's only concern is manhattan, and we haven't seen a whole lot of help out here. fortunately, my wife and the neighborhood i'm in isn't in bad shape, but there are neighborhoods that are really decimated. it doesn't seem to me like the mayor is doing anything about it. we need gas. we need electricity. i saw two con-ed trucks and haven't seen any more on staten island. nothing is happening out here. we're getting pretty desperate >> reporter: thank you grur time. the best of luck to you in the days ahead. tamron, we're also hearing there's some conflict when it comes to hotel rooms where evacuees have been placed recently because of reservations for marathon runners coming to the city and some hotels having to say we already have guests that are booked
the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. we will get reaction this morning from capitol hill and the very latest reporting on this developing story from our chief foreign affairs correspondent, andrea mitchell, who broke the story friday afternoon. >>> also, the president and republicans get set to negotiate new taxes and spending cuts. is a breakthrough possible? >> i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. it was debated over and over again. and on tuesday night, we found out the majority of americans agree with my approach. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we are ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. now, we want you to lead. >> where does it all go from here? we will ask democratic senator from new york, chuck schumer and republican senator from oklahoma, tom coburn. >>> also, we check in with cnbc's jim cramer to hear about the economic status should washington fail and avert fiscal disaster by the end of the year. >>> plus, what is the future of the gop after a stinging defeat for romney and the republicans? and how will presiden

've got chuck todd joining us and howard fineman. i have to give you some anecdotal information which has given me good information. i have a brother charlie who always votes for the winner. he called me an hour ago and said it's obama. because that's who he's going to vote for. don't laugh, chuck. when you get an absolute provable leading indicator you will never let it go either. so i've got one. i've looked at all the numbers today. all the numbers seem to point to a mild victory for obama. none seem to point for a victory for romney. what do you know so far? >> i can tell you the body language of the campaign, talking to the two campaigns. the obama folks don't think they're trailing in a single battleground state and this is the day before the election. that's not to say they think they win every one of the nine battlegrounds if you include north carolina in that larger nine. that's how confident they are. that's how much they believe that they have done enough of what i would call the building the flood walls, if you will, with the early vote and the absentee. and what their turn in

get to us, we ask you to come and deliver your supplies. one thing we truly need, we need more fuel. >> ben, even if fema absolutely does its job, and there's every indication it is, there could still be images of desperate people come monday, tuesday. i know you'll want to say this is not political, but let me ask you about the implications. is there a possible downside here for the president? >> you know, the president is on this day and night. the administration is on this day and night. he put politics aside and ensured that federal resources were deployed to support this state's response efforts and to ensure that all the victims were taken care of. those resources have been deployed. he's doing everything he can to ensure that the requests from states are met. while he'll be on the trail today, he's still going to be focused on this and going to ensure that the states receive everything that they've requested and everything that they've needed. this is one of the worst storms in our memories. the president's going to make sure that the federal government is very focused on thi
ed show." thanks so much for joining us tonight. that is "the ed show," i'm ed schultz, and "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening, rachel. >> good evening, ed. thanks for stay with us for the next hour. happy halloween. as you can tell, my halloween costume this year is once again middle-aged lesbian pundit in cheap jacket. boo. because it is october 31st, in much of the country, kids are dressing up in costume and they're trick or treating. tonight, for our producer, it means indulging the frog prince who lives in his house who used to be his son, alias. it is halloween whatever it can be halloween. but this year, it is not halloween because it cannot be halloween ever. today governor chris christie postponed halloween today by executive order for the whole state of new jersey, the state hardest hit by hurricane sandy. they will be moving halloween to monday, monday, november 5th, in order to protect new jersey's young trick-or-treaters from floodwaters and live wires and downed trees. these crews were fixing fallen power lines in toms river, new jersey, today.
president obama. it's another tactic he's using. he's won on this issue. >> dorian warren gets tonight's last word. thanks, dorian. >> thank you. word." up next, "hardball" with chris matthews. >> jersey boys. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. we've heard the story, how in the winter of world war i, the two sides, german and english, climbed out of their trenches and sang christmas carols together. well, today, an echo of that spirit rose over the jersey shore. two politicians of different parties figuring out how to do their jobs together. say what you will, debbie downers of the world, there comes a time when the grown-ups got to do their jobs. so they put away their toys, their big birds and their bayonets and do the business they got elected to. i love politics, and today is one of the reasons. it's not all stupid ads on tv, it's not all handlers and bs artists. some days it's just a job, and some days like today, it's the most important job we've got. joining me to talk about this, this remarkable political m
will not convene a special panel to investigate the attacks on the u.s. consulate in benghazi in september. we will be talking about both those stories in-depth on tomorrow's show. but right now i am joined by george gale, executive director of nation people's actions, which advocates for racial and economic justice, heather mcgee, vice president of the progressive think tank, new york democratic congressman and friend of the show jerry mather and msnbc contributor joy reed, managing editor of thegrio.com. on a conference call with donors this week, portions of which were posted online by abc news mitt romney blamed his loss to president obama on what he calls gifts the president had given to core democratic constituencies like students, women, and latinos. >> what the president -- the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> just note that, you know, doesn't actually cost any money but side point. romney's framing of the president's camp
's asking us -- he is asking his supporters to vote for revenge. i'm asking you to vote for love of country. >> oh, for the love of christmas, three days to go. let's get right to our panel. with me here at democracy plaza is professor james peterson of lehigh university, nbc correspondent and eli gilmore of the excel ie license. ari, the fact that romney is still desperately trying to find a zinger from the president's speech indicates there's a problem, isn't there? he's just not winning. >> it is a bad sign if you're playing these kind of word games this close to the end. you want to be making a big, bold closing argument. that's not what you're seeing from the romney campaign. you're seeing a lot of spinning. you're seeing talk about pennsylvania. you're seeing talk about these quotes and obviously what the president meant was, if you have a feeling of revenge, if you're feeling excited, make sure to go out and do your civic duty, that's what counts. i mean, it's such a reach and so silly to try to take that and turn it into something else. but that's where they're at right now. >> so i
with us. >> great to be with you. >> that is "the ed show" and i'm ed schultz. i guess this is what winning feels like. it feels pretty good. it's sure a heck of a lot different than 2004. "the rachel maddow show" begins right now. great work last night. >> thank you. you look as fresh as a daisy. i feel like i've been run over by a truck. you look ten years younger than you did yesterday. >> my key, forget what sleep is all about and it kind of wears on you. >> i hear you. thanks, man, appreciate it. and thanks to you for staying with us this hour. uh, that happened! that really happened. we are not going to have a supreme court that will overturn roe versus wade. there will be no more antonin scalias and samuel aleatos added to this court. we're not going to repeal health reform. nobody is going to kill medicare and make old people in this generation or any other generation fight it out on the open market to try to get health insurance. we are not going to do that. we are not going to give a 20% tax cut to millionaires and billionaires and expect programs like food stamps and kid'
, the fiscal cliff is one artificial construct cooked up by the congress and the president to basically get us to think about a much bigger problem, which is what you pointed out. entitlement reform and tax reform and all the big issues and putting america into the accounts. the problem is the president -- i mean, you know, frankly has all the leverage here. so he doesn't need to compromise that much to get half, if not three-quarters of what he wants. >> i think the president is feeling that he has the leverage. one thing we've seen is he's going to take this message to the people. it seems to me he's learned a little bit from the fights he had before, leaving it all in washington giving the republicans a lot of leverage. making it a national fight and bringing in the voters makes it something with more leverage. did he learn? is he going to play this fight out differently? >> if there's anything he learned from the election but not just the national election but where you had the referendum where people were very, very happy by and large to let the rich pay more. i think you're going to see
). is and good president? he brought us through clean four years of scandalless government. you have the weekend to think about it and then vote like your country depends on it, because it does. and that's "hardball" for now. join me sunday night at 5:00 and 7:00 for a special "hardball" with vice president joe biden. "politicsnation" starts right now with al sharpton. >>> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. four days until election day. the real clear politics shows president obama with 47.4% in national polls, mitt romney has 47.3% the new york times 538 blog says that if the election were held today, the president would win 303 electoral votes and romney would win 235. 270 are needed to win the white house. the times blog gives the president an 81% chance of winning the election. romney has a 19% chance. and as of tonight, 25 million people have already voted but long lines are creating a serious situation in some parts of florida. yes, florida all over again. some people are waiting three hours or more to vote and we will be asking why governor rick scott in florida is refusing t
ball, and i approve this message. all right. that does it for us at the cycle. >> krystal ball says an act of god breaks the demonization of this president. thank you and good afternoon it's thursday, november 1st, and where did that mice old mitt romney go? mean old mitt is back on the trail. >>> five days to go and the pace is fast and furious. >> i was a leader in the boy scouts of america some years ago. >> no! faster than that. >> you know i'll fight for you and your families every single day as hard as i know how. you know that. >> if i'm re-elected -- excuse me, if i'm elected. >> we've gone too far to turn back now. >> we need you, virginia. we've got to take become america. >> together we'll renew those bonds and reaffirm that spirit that makes the united states of america the greatest nation on earth. thank you, wisconsin. >> while full fury abounds about two politicians helping millions. >> is it possible obama called christie and said you want some money? you better let me come. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern. >> barack obama stole mitt's
it was a 1,000-mile wide storm. at least 109 people are said to have died in the u.s. and another 60 were killed in the caribbean. as of this morning 2.9 million customers remain without power across 15 states and the washington, d.c. the economic losses are nearing $50 billion. flooding of new york subways and commuter train tunnels and loss of business accounts for much of that estimate. with an election just a few days away the political media industrial complex briefly ground to a halt and then somewhat awkwardly cranked back to life with mitt romney turning a campaign event into a relief rally. president obama heading back out on the trail and pundits growing more and more comfortable speculating consequences of the disaster. local and area officials had to make practical decisions and give emergency briefings and address the anxiety of their constituents. governor chris christie seemed to suggest he wasn't taking the election into consideration. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea. nor am i the

. >> good to have you with us tonight. this is the report we've all been waiting for. the exienl jobs report before the election is now out and it is all good news for the obama supporters. the united states added 171,000 jobs last month. expectations were around 125,000 new jobs. the unemployment rate is up .1% of a point to 7.9%. the reason behind the slight uptick is more americans joined the work force. this of course is good news. it makes october 184,000 jobs were added to the private sector. numbers for august and september were revised upward. the job numbers helped president obama make the case about the improving economy. >> in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. today our businesses have created 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we hired that companies hired more workers in october than any time in the last eight months. >> with only four days left on the campaign trail, the candidates were all over the crucial state of ohio. president obama made three different stops today in that state. first here in hilliard ohio
with homeland security and the rest and one of the principals says, do you want us working with con ed? we usually don't do this? he says to leon, the secretary of defense, can you get generators in to con ed? let's get this up and running. he just cuts through. he makes a decision and he stands by what he does. in contrast to governor romney, you never know where he is. this guy makes a decision, chris. as i said it before, he has a backbone like a ramrod. he stands by what he says, and he lives by it. >> the way he chose to go after bin laden, the decision to rescue the auto industry. when he makes those decisions, everybody else sees cool on the outside. what can you see? >> i see a guy who starts off and the questions he asks are about how this can affect real people. not a joke. it's all straight. here's the deal. on the automobile rescue, he said, how can you let an iconic industry go under? what does that say about the country? there's a million people going to lose their jobs. so the question was, he didn't think it was better, but how could you not take the chance? >> bipartisan g

jersey. chuck, tell us what the trip felt like. when i look at those two men together, it looks to me as the way that not necessarily on this particular subject but it's the way serious men and women of government want to work together regardless of part y. and the whole day seemed to have that sensation to it. >> well, it did. and let me tell you something about christie. he just seemed like an exhausted guy. he struck me as somebody who had been up for a couple of straight days, who was numb, a little emotional to what he'd been seeing but also numb to the destruction he'd been seeing. so you know, it was interesting. when the president walked out of air force one there was only one guy to greet him, and it was christie. and then the two of them just immediately, you could tell, were just -- seemed to -- they suddenly became inseparable, and then you never saw more than a foot of actual physical distance between the two of them. you know, they worked the shelter together and all this stuff. so it was a -- it certainly was -- it was business-like, but you could just -- you could feel
's election brought us not just a second term for president obama but a new congress as well. there are two ways to look at the make up of the congress. one is the endorsement of the status quo. asking the two to work together as house speaker john boehner put it the day after the election. >> the american people have spoken. they reelected president obama. they have again reelected a republican majority in the house of representatives. if there's a mandate in yesterday's results, it's a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges we all face as a nation. >> the other way to interpret the results is to see them as a resounding liberal governance. a larger and apparently more democratic majority in the senate. it's how harry reid framed the results. >> we had an overwhelming re-election of the president. we picked up seats in the senate and the house. it's not the status quo. >> one thing is clear. it will not look like any congress we have ever had. the most stunning exacten is the diminishing number of white men in house of representatives. in the curre
. and the difference between us, he made promises he couldn't keep. i'm making promises i have kept and i will keep them for the american people. i have a clear and unequivocal message, and that is america is about to come roaring back. [ cheering ] >> joining me now, "washington post" columnist and msnbc analyst eugene robinson, marc caputo and mark murray. thank you so much, gentlemen, for joining. i got to bring eugene in because he is right here and i have the pleasure of sitting alongside. when we heard or i heard governor romney say we're roaring back, i instantly thought of the auto bailout, the auto industry. how many times we heard on the campaign trail from obama and others saying gm is roaring back. and i thought, wow, it all goes back to ohio and that auto bailout which was unpopular at the time, and now here we are. >> right. so one of the big questions is will mitt romney kind of blur the lines on the auto bailout sufficiently to gain a little ground in ohio? because that is a huge issue in that state. and arguably, we could be saying wednesday that that issue won the state for presid
and a confident endorsement at that. >> there's only one thing that might deny us the presidency that is the god-given property of the republican party. >> the 47% tape? >> nope. >> the empty chair? >> nope. >> cayman islands? >> not a problem. >> swiss bank accounts 10000 bet, i like to fire people, forcible hair cut, the tax returns wesley snipes would call suspicious. >> no, no, no and no. >> none of that. it will probably just be let detroit go bankrupt. before we get to our panel we want to listen in to the president who has taken the stage for a third campaign event of the day this one in lima, ohio. let's listen. >> we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs, and this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than in any time in the last eight months. home values are on the rise. housing construction is moving up. we're less dependent on foreign oil than at any time in the last 20 years. because of the service and sacrifice of our brave men and women in unif
wants to return us to the very same policies that created the recession in the first place. when we were losing 800,000 jobs.et he wants to return to those policies. that's the choice. do we build on the progress that we've made, and we have a lot more work to do. the president has a plan to continue to create jobs and grow the middle class. or do we take a risk and go back to the same policies that wrecked the economy? that's all governor romney is offering. >> that's also the issue of how you've worked with the other side. governor romney has said all ths president has done is attacked the other side and not worked with congress. even mayor bloomberg who endorsed the president for a second term said he was still disappointed by the president. this is part of his remarks or his op-ed he wrote in that endorsement. in 2008, he writes, obama ran as a pragmatic problem solver and consensus builder. but as president, he devoted m little time and effort to developing and sustaining a coalition of centrists which doomed hope for any real progress on illegal guns, immigration, tax reform, job c
